of defense has invested significant time and resources into improving our nation's energy security. energy security is imperative to the success of today's military. which, by the way, uses 93% of the energy that's used by the federal government, which is the largest user of energy in this country. as our current chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general dempsey, has said, without improving our energy security we are not merely standing still as a nation, we are falling behind. let's be clear. energy security is national security. and our military leadership understands this. other countries, including some of our strongest competitors, also understand this and we ignore this fact at our own peril. i saw some of the innovations that the navy has adopted earlier this year when i chaired a hearing for the energy subcommittee on water and power down in norfolk aboard the uss kersarge. the purpose was to highlight the advancements the navy continues to make in harnessing renewable energy resources. up with of those resources i saw is homegrown -- homegrown biofuels. and the navy recently

at halftime, we can run on anybody because we feel like we have run on better defenses this year, right now, when they need it, they are grinding out chunks. 15 yards on that one. >> todd: this is very similar to what they did against lsu earlier in the year. another great defense. they ran the ball 58 times in that game and they only threw 13 passes. and in the second half, they wore down the lsu defense. that is what it looks like they are doing tonight as well. >> brad: this team will be on its way back to gainesville when notre dame and usc are playing. as far as watching that game as a team, that's pretty doubtful, but i'm sure they will watch what they can when they get back home. 2:30 remaining here as we check in with robert flores. >> here is an all-american player of the week nominee. landry jones of oklahoma. he has three touchdowns but right now, they are losing to oklahoma state by seven on espn. five minutes to go. jones is trying to leave the team on a game tying drive. vote text to 34763. brad? >> brad: tank carradine, one of the seniors on this club, down and in a lot of pa
engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in the future, we may wish to. >> i agr

with defense lawyers prosecutors, law enforcement, a lot of people on our task force. when we talk to law enforcement one thing that stood out was the law enforcement cannot even detain someone if you shoot someone dead in the streets of florida, and you claim stand your ground, law enforcement can't even detain you under the immunity provision so they can createlyaccurately do an investigation. my task force came out with amend so law enforcement can do their job and investigate the claim of stand your ground. >> eliot: was governor scott semiicsympathetic to that narrow amendment, or did you feel that there was a pre-ordained out come in saying that the law was good as it is. >> definitely. i gave them a copy of my task force which has a cross section of republicans and democrats across the aisle, and they had that in their possession during the whole road show around the state. they never even discussed it. when they put out their report it was never discussed. i don't know how a rational person can think that law enforcement should be able to detain someone when you have a dead person
crimes charges that he's facing. this in a way i think could be a strategy on the part of the defense to maneuver and maybe break it apart. >> cenk: that's interesting. even if you break it apart the prosecution still can pursue the big are charges right? i'm not sure i see the upside of unilaterally giving a plea where you admit to even the lesser charges. >> yeah, and i think you have a valid can certain. i have that concern myself as somebody who has been following this all along. the question is what can you gain. i guess it's just this conventional wisdom that you're giving the judge a possibility that she wouldn't have to handle this long, you drown-out trial that could last all of next year. >> cenk: so what. it's their job. i've been curious about the defense for a long time. the defense does seem to have one interesting idea, which is hey, if you treat someone in a certain inhumane way before you go to trial, apparently that can be grounds for dismissal. is there any chance that will work? >> probably thought but i mean as far as the defense goes, since there is clear evidenc

[laughter] i know many of you and your friends and neighbors are recovering from the defense of hurricane sandy -- i want to let you know our thoughts are with everyone who has suffered during the storm and its aftermath. it has been a very challenging time for new york city. i think you have shown quite a bit of fortitude in coming back and getting back to business. my remarks today are going to focus on the reasons for the disappointingly slow pace of economic recovery in the united states, and the policy actions that have been taken by the federal open market committee to support the economy. in addition, i will discuss important economic challenges our country faces as we close out 2012 and move into 2013, in particular the challenge of putting federal government finances on a sustainable path and the longer run while avoiding actions that would endanger the economic recovery in the near term. the economy is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and recession, but the pace of the recovery has been slower than fomc participants and others had hoped or anticipated
the federal government is preparing for the so-called sequestration, the automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic spending. later, a discussion of reforming the u.s. postal service by the end of this year. the u.s. postal service lost $16 billion in the fiscal 2012. many are calling for this congress to do something to reform how the postal service works. those are our topics coming up next. we will be right back. >[video clip] >> what about the soviet union, khrushchev announced tomorrow that if we attack cuba that it's going to be nuclear war? >> this is such a serious thing that we will be uneasy and things happening. we've got to do something. >> all right. " i would want to keep my own people very alert. >> tell them hang on tight. >> it is amazing that eisenhower tells him to have his people alert, because everyone is completely on edge. and of course kennedy laps. and he says to hang on tight, which is a nice moment that even on this terribly tense day they're able to joke a little bit with each other, especially during this crisis. i think they have a sense of how lonely it i

in cuts to domestic and defense spending. since the reagan era, most republicans have pledged not to raise taxes. but as nbc's mike viqueira reports, there are some signs of flexibility on both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: it's a pledge almost all republicans have signed, to oppose tax increases of any kind. that once solid wall was showing cracks. >>> the pledge you saw 18 years ago, 20 years ago was for that congress. the world has changed and the economic situation is different. >> reporter: but republicans insist in return for defying party doctrine, democrats must agree to changes in social security and medicare. >> i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> reporter: activists on the left are lining up to oppose those reforms, but the president has put them on the table before. during last year's failed talks on a grand bargain and more recently in his first postelection press conference. >> we have to continue to take a serious look at how we reform our entitlements because health care costs continue
, there is no near-term risk factored in, and that makes me very nervous. we are being very defensive, given that risk is still out there. i wouldn't be shocked to see 5%, 10%, if we went off the cliff on the s&p. that wouldn't be a big surprise to me. put it into perspective, last august when we had the debt ceiling and a downgrade, we saw a much bigger fall in the stock market then. >> susie: you say you're uncomfortable with this kind of uncertainty. how are you positioning the portfolios for your investors? you said you're defensive. tell us more. >> so into the u.s. election, especially given that the polls were leaning towards obama, we had taken a defensive stance already. we had gone slightly underweight equities, and added more things like high-yield mortgage debt, emerging market debt, and mortgage-backed securities, that will yield as much as capital appreciation, and investments that have lower volatility than the stock market. so we have an overweight there. those investments i just spoke about, that's about 24% of our portfolio right now, and that's definitely helped us get thr
defense of marriage act. >> the san francisco police department plans to hire new officers. it will start accepting applications for entry level officers tomorrow. now to be eligible you must be 21 years old, a u.s. citizen, have a valid california driver's license and a high school diploma or the equivalent. there is no maximum age limit. the application period will end friday, december 7th. the starting salary for san francisco police officers is $88,000 a year. >>> the city of antioch meantime is hoping to offer a new incentive athlete at bringing experienced officers to its police department. the city council is set to consider a proposal on tuesday to change the retirement formula for both existing officers and transfers from other departments. if approved officers could retire at the age of 50, with a pension of 3% of their last year's salary, time the number of years that they worked for the department. antioch currently has 14 vacant positions. >>> bird shooting will be allowed this week at mineta san josi international airport to help reduce the chance of bird strikes. staffers a
. the companies that are getting huge defense contracts are now experts on what we ought to do with the budget. and they are there protecting their own backside. that's the only way i see it. they don't want to give up any revenue whatsoever. as for social security, its solvency is extended into 2033. do we have to do anything about that right now? do we need to raise the cap? >> no. and i think any move to put social security into this deal is going to hemorrhage a lot of support. so i think that's a nonstarter. the defense budget has to be part of this too. some of these rich guys are willing to put defense on the table. good for them. some may not be so wild about that. and if defense isn't part of the deal, then again, it's not a serious deal. >> and i have to point out, these are the big business leaders that are getting intervinte interviewed talking about the insecurity in the economy. i don't know. the early reports is that black friday was pretty good. the weekend was strong and cyber monday ain't bad either. so the fear talk doesn't seem to be playing on the consumer. e.j. dionne, gr

in defense attorney and law professor joey jackson. joey, you know, on the surface this sounds big. almost unbelievable. >> huge. >> how could they have missed this, but i guess the question is if it hadn't been missed, if they had found this, if the prosecution had this in their hands, would it have changed the outcome? >> i think this is what we call outcome determinetive. how powerful would it have been for the prosecution to have evidence the day she went missing of a search that said "fool proof suffocation." i think it's a game changer. it's a huge miss on their part. even more importantly, the defense had this. how could the prosecution not? >> that's right. defense attorney jose baez said he knew about this all along and was actually waiting for it to come up. >> it never did. exactly. so interestingly enough, the question is asked, well, you ho could a defense attorney do that? don't we share information? the answer is yes but no, but here's what i mean. there's an obligation for what we call reciprocal discovery. if i have information, i have to give it to the prosecution so they
with honeywell will get big defense contracts. some former lawmakers including msnbc political analyst ed rendell for full disclosure are on the group's steering committee. the real issue is the position taken by these corporate ceos. joining me now is e.j. dionne, washington post columnist and author of the book "our divided political heart." good to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you. >> this looks like a publicity tour taking aim at earned benefits instead of corporate welfare. it's like these guys have the power to go out and command the camera and the exposure and to make share case that everybody else is the problem but their corporate welfare. how do you see it? >> well, i tell you, ed, one of the things that really bothers me is when these guys start talking about raising the retirement age and what do they have in mind? they have in mind people like ceos, people like us who talk and write for a living, i hope i'm talking to you for a good long time, but they don't think the about what this means for people who might work on their feet all day at a mcdonald's. i'd like to c
president. >> brian: joining us is the navy commander from the office of secretary of defense under george bush. he is jd gordon. is it up to the president to get more involved to tell morsi to stop with the absolute monarch thing. >> i think the president should stand up to the muslim brotherhood and say we will not send aid dollars to egypt. morsi put himself [pwao-fr] the courts and law. it is one dick traitorship replaced by another. we need to get tough on egypt. >> steve: when the arab spring first started people were optmistic and it is not turning out the way we hoped it would. >> no, in 2010 the survey poll in egypt found that 17 percent of the egyptians were favorable to the united states and 24 percent favorable to al-qaida and 60 percent to the islamic brotherhood. if you had general elections and threw out mubarack you would get the muslim brotherhood in charge. >> brian: are you encouraged that the people would egypt decided they would not stand with him. >> this is an encouraging sign. i jipt has mod rate secular parties. we should support them. that's the only way to have c
? >> the jeep ad. that was the biggest one. they spent the last 14 days of the election on the defense. day after day they had to answer for that. it put them on the defense for a long time because it was not true. >> the flip side of that, you put the events back in spring, defining him. a lot of regret among republicans about how early you define him. the kind of campaign -- why was that a brilliant insight? >> at the time it was risky because of super pacs. we were going to spend a majority of our money in the summer and not of the fall. we were going to get out spend because we believed that late tv did not matter as much. it turns out we were right. >> based on what you know about the nation's mood and geography, everything you learned, what republican candidate would have had the best shot? >> that is a good question. we were honest about our concerns about jon huntsman. i think he would have been a tough general election candidate. as someone who helped manage his confirmation, he is a good guy. we looked at his profile and thought he would have been difficult. >> and you thought by
billion of that is out of national defense and $30 billion of that at the domestic discretionary -- $50 billion of that is out of national defense and $50 billion of that is domestic discretionary. will the republicans keep obama on a short leash and give him an allowance every month in return for better behavior or will they give him a debt ceiling that goes along time? what will happen? one option is looked to history. two years ago we faced exactly this situation, the 2001 2003 tax cuts all lapsed. we had a republican house coming in, and democratic senate and democratic president. why would that not the way you do? obama says i will hold my breath until i turn blue and stamp my feet. 2 years ago he said he did not want to raise taxes on small businesses because it would damage the economy. now he thinks this economy is stronger than it was two years ago and we are in better shape to take the economic hit. it is an interesting question. if you go over the tax cliff and taxes are raised dramatically, the house would have our past -- will already have passed. on the sequester, i though
a couple of weeks ago in a full-throated defense, even angry defense of susan rice. but another meeting that susan rice had today was with senator bob corker of tennessee. yesterday he told reporters in the hallways that he thought she would be a better democratic committee chair than secretary of state. he was very careful not to say one way or the other how he would vote if she were nominated. but he did say a warning for the president. >> i would just ask that the president step back away from all of the buzz around this particular situation and take a deep breath and decide who is the best secretary of state for our country at this time when we have so many issues to deal with. >> reporter: the point that he made is that he and other senators view the role of secretary of state differently from other cabinet posts where traditionally senators tend to give senators the benefit of doubt that they could have whomever they want in their cabinet when they seat the secretary of state differently. another point of controversy in these meetings that susan rice has been having has nothing to
of their loved one if that's really true. >> defense attorney klapp argued that karen's killer must have been drenched in blood after such an attack. and there was no forensic evidence to show his client was that person. >> in order to buy the state's case, you have to make assumption upon assumption upon assumption. that's not what our system is about. >> how did i do it? how on earth did not one single drop of blood get on my clothing, anything like that? >> or in your car which was ripped apart. >> right. that's why i agreed to let them look. get what you want. because i knew i was innocent. >> the defense also tore into the credibility of the state's star witness, george solomon. saying it was ridiculous to think tim would get an invitation to stay with him after blurting out a murder confession. >> hey, i killed somebody just now or whatever. oh, really? okay. come on let's go see my wife and kids. no way. >> a confident tim permenter decided to speak directly to the jury. he took he stand in his own defense. >> he attitude was, look, you've got to get up here and talk to these people. >

can legally marry. marriage is usually a state law matter but under the federal defense of marriage act, a law passed in 1996, the federal government does not recognize those marriages. in that situation, a gay couple who is legally married in boston, cannot file a joint tax return. they cannot get benefits under social security for their spouse like another merit couple would. a series of lawsuits have been filed a federal appeals court in boston and new york ruled tartabull law is unconstitutional. it denies gays and lesbians equal protection under the law. they are legally married. the court said they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had pa

her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us, and i will listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi, but i can tell you this. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> smart of her to call the meeting. acting cia director michael morrell will accompany rice during today's meeting, fueling speculation that the ambassador is topping president obama's list to replace secretary of state clinton. some say the president could announce his choice this week. >> i'm still holding out. i think it may be jill kelley who gets the nod. >>> a new report says the assad regime received help from russia as international sanctions are beginning to cripple the syrian economy. eight round-trip flights bet
tenure as director of the c.i.a. and secretary of defense, i have truly been privileged to meet and work with thousands of professionals who have made this fight their fight, who have put their lives on the line for their country and who have built the most effective global counterterrorism network the world has ever seen. their work, i believe, has made the american people safer. the united states more secure. and has put al qaeda on the defensive. let me describe some of the progress that has been achieved in this fight against al qaeda. first of all, with respect to core al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, and that's where the leadership of al qaeda after 9/11 found refuge. our military forces, our intelligence professionals, our diplomats, our development experts have taken the fight to al qaeda's leadership. first through dramatically expanded counterterrorism operations on the afghanistan-pakistan border. and second, through a renewed, revitalized and properly resourced effort to help build an afghanistan that can secure and govern itself. and that's the fundamental mission in af
could include debate on defense programs and policy, and possibly legislation to do with equal rights, people with disabilities. centers will us from 12:30-2:15 eastern for weeks the party meetings. live coverage of the senate and members gavel in right here on c-span2. right now some debate from the floor of the senate yesterday between majority leader reid and republican leader mitch mcconnell. d, w they talkede about potentialit't changes to filibuster rules. here's some of what they had to say. >> i'd like to turn to anotheras issue that doesn't grab as manyt utadlines as these others we'veb been focus on the last few days o the mortal threat that has been quietly gathering against one of the most cherished safeguards of our government. i'm referring to the latest effort by some on the other side, most of whom have never served a day in the minority, to force a change in senate rules at the beginning of the new year that would fundamentally change the character of the senate. this is no exaggeration. what these democrats have in mind is a fundamental change to the way the senate o
by the department of defense, it's now a not for profit called helmets to hard hats. and what it basically does, it identifies 60,000 american businesses and some of the trade unions. they collaborate to get together, to identify veterans who have already had extraordinary training and discipline and leadership and teamwork and it accelerates the apprenticeship program. so these individuals could be making $60,000, $70,000 a year if there was work to be had here. so it's an investment in america, it's an investment in american businesses, and it says to our returning veterans in a real sincere and genuine way, thank you for your service. mr. garamendi: you said earlier that the american society of engineers, i think that was the name, said that we have a d rating for infrastructure and that we need over $2 trillion. i don't know anybody in my district where we may have a serious flood in the next three days that says the infrastructure is adequate. they're look at those levinees and they're watching the water rise and they're saying, this isn't sufficient to protect us. so in a very real sense
want to put that out there, put them on the defensive. and by the way, if they reject a fair deal, it makes it easier for us to deal with our own politics because we've showed that the problem is more than tehran. >> david ignatius, the same question i asked richard haass. do you think the iranians will take a threat from the united states more seriously than saddam hussein, or noriega or other dictators took in years past? >> the iranians have believed for years, certainly ever since i visited tehran in 2006, that the u.s. is not prepared to go to war to stop iran's nuclear program no matter what we may say or threaten. they just don't think -- they think it would be crazy for us to do it and that we're not crazy. i think an additional problem for president obama in making his policy by any means necessary credible is that this presidential campaign showed clearly to me the absolute defining moment was the third debate on foreign policy. it showed that the american people do not want to go to war again. the two candidates, romney and obama, were identical in expressing quite rest
defense. i called city hall and they said, we would never issue anything like that. there was an official stamp. i also called the district attorney's office. they never called me back. i called and called again. this is our right fraud. if you just had a voter i.d.. the lines are enormous. i have to check the spelling of their name, i have to look up everything. it is so much easier and nicer for us as a worker. i was there for 14 hours that day with a half hour lunch. i was so happy to have somebody give me an idea. it made the process so much better. host: how many different types of ids are acceptable? caller: anything. student identification, anything with a name. i said, to you have anything else with the address of their. he said i do not have to share your id. i knew these people did not live in my neighborhood. i have lived there since 2006. i know almost everybody in my neighborhood. this was issued by the city of philadelphia, outright fraud. host: a couple more stories we are looking at this morning as we continue the discussion on remedies to speed of the voting process. this
at the oral argument where defense counsel made very clear that ether has many lawful uses. that makes it different from what the court considered in place. >> not in somebody's house. i mean, maybe lawful uses in a factory or an operating room, but nobody has cans of ether in their house unless they're making drugs. >> the defense counsel i think correctly suggested that there are, in fact, lawful uses in photography labs. he actually had an expert who testified about the various lawful uses of ether this a house. the government was not making an argument that that was contraband or evidence of a crime. the government was just saying, oh, it's very limited information because we had already tracked the ether to the house. and the court said, basically what it said in powell, it might not be much, but it's still about lawful information/activity in the house, and that's protected. sure, we say kyllo o, lawful activity in the house, but those are not legitimate interests, and the court has said that again and again and again. >> but in kyllo there was already a seizure that had happened
to watch defense spending get gouged. [ scream ] >> stephanie: if republicans captain see their way toward additional revenues then we're better off going over the cliff and readdressing this with a better congress in january. >> it's the republicans holding the country hostage. >> they're saying it's more of a slope where the economic effects will be handled gradually. we're going to have a whole new congress. >> more democrats. >> we have the technology. we can make them better. >> stephanie: we built that. >> yes we did. we gave it a bionic eye apparently. >> stephanie: right. patty will have to move her hair to hear you. >> you said what now, mitt romney's plan? no. no. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: what kind of budget geeks, we just have that sound effect. >> it's come in handy more often than not. >> stephanie: i go like this and you do that. >> that was the bionic man effect. >> stephanie: hers is like ding-ding-ding, like sonar. [ dinging ] >> republicans would most likely bear the public blame if policy makers deadlock. only 29% would blame the president. it's very important that we
in the non-defense discretionary. the cost of security programs in that same time period has gone up 60%. the cost of mandatory programs is up 30%. i want to call your attention to one aspect progressives need to remind people. of the $1.50 trillion already in spending cuts, $900 billion comes from spending. we have given far more than when it comes to defense side. let's talk about those for a minute. the budget control act and sequestration would result in dramatic cuts to spending. we have heard a lot of talk about the impact it will have on our national defense. to believe that having ended one war in iraq and ending another in afghanistan that we cannot find savings in the pentagon, i do not think that is a fair assessment. there are savings to be had that will not compromise our national security. the simpson-bowles commission approach established in the outer years to lay the temptation to go back into the non-defense accounts when too much political pressure keeps you out of defense spending. i would hope any long-term agreement would improve that. on the non-defense side, i thi
